You need to understand the need of car detailing according to the changing of seasons. Different seasons damage your car in different ways and in order to gain maximum protection you need to understand how seasons impact your car detailing.

Spring Detailing
As spring time starts coming temperature starts rising. Making it the perfect time to provide protection to your car. The reason why it is important to refresh your car's protection in spring is due to winter the salt used on roads in snowstorms can be very damaging to your car and will damage your wax. If it is not treated and that salt stays on the car for a long time it will remove all the protection of your wax and will surely damage your car's paint. This will result it in your car becoming dirty sooner and might need a full paint job sooner than you think. So after winter there is a high probability that your wax is not in good condition and needs to be refreshed. So you should get your car waxed again and before waxing clay barring treatment will be a plus.

Summer Detailing
Summer comes with a higher temperature and damage Sun's UV rays. So it is very important to get your car ready for all the damages with a coating of wax protection. The Sun's harsh UV rays can fade the color of your car and if you have a red car, then waxing becomes compulsory as it is more prone to being oxidized. Mobile Works Auto Detailing in Lexington SC also recommends using wax or applying paint sealant to all exterior windows this will make it safer and easier to drive in the rain. When it comes to interior detailing, you can use UV protective products to dress interior in order to stop fading and cracking.

Fall Detailing
As winter is the most damaging season for car detailing, you can use the time in Fall to gain extra protection against it. During Fall, the temperature is quite moderate, so you should use that time to add extra protection to the exterior of your car. As the first snowfall occurs, you should have enough protection to protect from damaging effects of road salt. You can use durable waxes during this time and use multiple coats for maximum protection.

Winter Detailing
During winter you job is to protect your car as much as possible. As you already have protection from wax which you applied in the Fall, you can clean your vehicle as frequent as possible to avoid any build-up of road salt. The longer you will let the road salt stays on your car's surface the more time it will have to damage your car's wax protection. Also avoid direct contact with your paint during the winter, which means never use a snow scraper or brush to remove snow this will damage too much damage your car's paint and there will be scratches and swirls all over. To remove snow, you can use hot water or any other safe heating element.

When it comes to car detailing there are many things which inexperienced people just spread that might seem good but are actually very harmful to your car. You need to be aware of all the issues related to car detailing in order to make sure you don't damage your car by following someone's tip who has less experience in car detailing. Below are some common Myths about car detailing.

Dishwashing Detergents will get the job done perfectly
Many people say it is safe to use Dishwashing detergent to clean your car and it gets the job done as good as other soaps can. But the problem is Dishwashing detergents are made for cleaning your dishes and it is their job to clean everything in order to get the best dishes. But when it comes to car, it needs some things on it so it could shine and protect from pollutants. Dishwashing soap will scrap off all the polymers from the paint that will make it dull.

If the car is shining it is clean
Shiny might be nice, but only to your eyes. Your eyes can't see properly what is going on in paint finishes. You should rub our hands on it and feel it, it will feel rough. If you want experiment just feel it with your hands after a good wash and then feel it after some time, there will be a huge difference.

Swirl marks can be removed by waxing
Waxing is not enough to clean swirl marks, it depends on how deep the swirls are to clean it according to it. Minor scratches can easily be fixed with just the use of paint cleaner and moderate ones will require more serious one and if marks are even deeper you might have to contact a professional.

Polishing and waxing is a same thing
Both polishing and waxing have different roles. Waxing will protect your paint and coat it with silicones, polymers and resins. However, polishing will provide a high gloss surface for better look to your car.

T-shirts and flannel can be used as good cleaning clothes
No matter how clean the T-shirt or such clothe is, it will only damage your car. As these clothes have plain surface, they will not pick up the dirt like micro fiber can do, instead they will grind it across paint finish.

Wax protection last for one year at least
Such guarantees are quite good for selling products but there is no 100% guarantee it will work that way. As many factors are involved in wax protection, durability such as weather, Vehicle is parked inside or outside and use of road salt it can last more or less.

After waxing there is no need for protecting paint finishes.
Yes, waxing does protect your car's surface, but still it needs to be protected from other damages like tree sap and tire rubber. To clean such things from your car you need to clean it using a mist-and-wipe product before they become harder to remove.
